[08:14:55] GM: you dont know, just that there are a abour [3d4] => [3,3,4] = (10) charges along the walls and on the artifact
[08:16:18] CWO3 Sarah swears softly. "If they're not on remote triggers, we could get rid of them or disarm. If they are…" she sighs. "Anyone have a camera at least? If we can get an image of the artifact at least, maybe something can be done."
[08:16:25] 2LT Kain Crokett tries to defuse the bombs. [1d100] => [58] = (58) vs 92 Demolitions
[08:16:46] GM: Suki will do the same [1d100] => [41] = (41) vs 95%
[08:17:08] 2LT Kain Crokett: Anyone with demolitions expertise start defusing these things.
[08:17:10] GM: Now, granted, Demolitions Disposal is more approprite…
[08:17:29] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((I gotta go with what I got.))
[08:17:51] CWO3 Sarah glances over to Anji. "Can you jam any signals from going into there? If they're on a remote detonator, that might give us time."
[08:18:25] GM: So based on that you both are able to determine that they are toaster versions of satchel charges, they can be bounced around easy enough so, your disarming them is more, getting at them and hucking them down an unused hallway,
[08:19:00] CWO3 Sarah: (( heh ))
[08:19:02] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[08:19:53] GM: I mean, not all bombs are the hyper sophisticated plot devices that only the super braniac can disarm using a mirror and a straw
[08:20:05] CWO3 Sarah: lol
[08:20:06] CWO3 Sarah: :)
[08:20:52] GM: You get the last explosive down the hallway when the lot of them detonate
[08:21:35] GM: [(2d4*10)*10] => 600
[08:22:03] GM: Blowing out a large portion of the temple innards and creating a nice fireball and blastwave
[08:22:15] CWO3 Sarah sighs and relaxes at that.
[08:22:52] GM: Shortly after that you hear over your comms a litney of "What the fuck was that" from all commands
[08:24:12] GM: Rienforcements arrive and leap frog past you, while follow on units relieve you.
[08:24:27] GM: Free RP
[08:26:16] 2LT Kain Crokett: So how are we going to get the this room to the doc?
[08:26:39] CWO3 Sarah looks over. "Well, if it's secure, probably need to bring the doc to the room."
[08:27:22] CWO3 Sarah: "Or alternatively take note of the orientation of the facility, and take several pictures from all angles in Cyclones."
[08:27:29] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) pokes and prods and generally looks Sarah over looking for wounds, damage etc.
[08:27:29] 1stLTFairman taps his helmet to see if sensors come back up; checks the blow up parts of haydonites and such to see if there is anything odd about them (perception [1d20+4] => [15,4] = (19); Intelligence [1d100] => [39] = (39) vs 73)
[08:28:42] GM: Jaron, your look over confirms the what you all noticed on your way in. The Haydonites in THIS room were Valtagos' the ones you fought on you way in were Regulars
[08:28:52] CWO3 Sarah looks to Suki and shakes her head. "I'm fine, Captain… it didn't get through the armor. And I did take action to protect myself further…" She smiles.
[08:30:32] GM: Jaron you do notice, on one of the screens left behind by the enemy readouts similer to those used in astrogation
[08:30:55] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) nods at Sarah.
[08:31:08] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Okay Chief.
[08:31:17] 2Lt. Aylanea tries to reset the radio on her Cyclone if she can. [1d100] => [32] = (32) vs. 88% Radio Basic
[08:31:48] GM: You dont reset it, but do determine that it will need depot level maintinance
[08:31:56] GM: I.e. it's shot, you need a new one
[08:32:55] 1stLTFairman asks "Anyone tech orient wish to come over here and make heads or tails of the screen read out?"
[08:33:55] CWO3 Sarah walks over to look. ( [1d100] => [28] = (28) nav: space vs. 80%)
[08:34:14] GM: They are star charts allright
[08:35:36] 2LT Kain Crokett: So this thing is a navicomp?
[08:36:01] Radi: It's an observatory actually.
[08:36:18] Radi says as she walkes in with a cadre of Cyclone bedecked Praxian warriors.
[08:36:40] CWO3 Sarah blinks at that and nods.
[08:36:43] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Erk
[08:36:49] 2LT Kain Crokett: Hello, my I ask who you are? I'm 2lt Kain Crockett of Noble Squad.
[08:38:47] Radi: Hello there 2nd Lt. Kain of Noble Sqaud, I'm Radi, Tagmatarchos, Praxian, I believe the word you use, is, Marines.
[08:39:41] GM: You note that she has an Oak Leaf under what is most likely her Praxian rank insignia.
[08:40:33] 2LT Kain Crokett tries to figure out her equivalent human rank[1d100] => [62] = (62) vs 85 Mil Ettiquette.
[08:40:36] GM: (She's a Major…)
[08:41:22] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Major.
[08:41:27] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) blushes.
[08:41:29] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((Typical combat protocols do not include saluting.))
[08:41:46] 2LT Kain Crokett notices the blush and notes it for later.
[08:42:13] GM: Generally no,
[08:42:33] 2LT Kain Crokett: [1d100] => [75] = (75) vs 85 Mil ettiquette for proper protocol.
[08:42:56] GM: Sutible honors are rendered
[08:43:37] CWO3 Sarah smiles warmly to the Praxian major, of course, as a break from looking around curiously.
[08:43:52] 2LT Kain Crokett: May I ask what you know of this place?
[08:45:12] Radi: This is one of our scarad places. A temple to Asteria
[08:46:17] Radi: And it would seem that beyond it's religious functions, it happenes to hold tech as well.
[08:46:57] Praxian Warrior spits on one of the fallen Reavers.
[08:47:15] Praxian Warrior: They desecrated the grounds Tagma.
[08:47:36] Radi looks around the room.
[08:47:38] 2LT Kain Crokett: Technology the Haydonites were interested in, and interested in keeping out of our hands. How many areas here are forbidden to all but the priestesses to enter?
[08:47:52] 2Lt. Aylanea peers around at the technology side. "Hope nothing was too damaged to work…"
[08:48:19] Radi: I would say that we would be the first outsiders to step foot in this place.
[08:48:47] Radi: But, I'm sure the priestesses will offer special dispensation for removing the Haydonites.
[08:49:21] Radi: Well rather, the first outsideers to step foot in here with their blessing.
[08:49:42] 2LT Kain Crokett: Thank you. Are you familiar with this kind of observatory?
[08:49:59] Radi: I'm a warrior not an astrolager
[08:50:14] Radi: Such things are not of my caste.
[08:50:49] Radi: It seems however that you are interested in this place.
[08:51:15] Radi orders her warriors to fan out and secure the rest of the temple alongside the UEEF and Karberran Marines.
[08:51:46] Radi removes her herlmet, revleaing a attractive brunette with blue mischevious eyes.
[08:53:35] 2LT Kain Crokett: Part of our mission ma'am. We are hunting down a potential strategic resource of unknown nature that the Haydonites are after. Our search has lead us here, and we want to know if there is something here that we need to put additional security around the grounds, and if it points to another location if it is not the resource in question.
[08:54:00] 2LT Kain Crokett tries not too be too appreciative of her features.
[08:54:56] CWO3 Sarah nods at that, looking around to see if she can spot anything remotely familiar from what was said in the translated books and what they know of them. [1d20+1] => [11,1] = (12)
[08:54:59] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[08:55:01] Radi: Well, regarding security, once the area is secured the Priestesses will insist that all non Praxians vacate. Security will be handled by us until members of the order arrive to take over, we will be blessed, and then told to leave as well.
[08:56:06] Radi: As for where this may point, if you have specialists that can learn that sort of thing, I would , off the record, suggest you get them in here before your troops are told to leave.
[08:56:45] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Thank you, Tagma.
[08:57:00] Radi: Anything for you Captain.
[08:57:56] 1stLTFairman quirks a brow
[08:58:05] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Eheh, /koff/ right, Crokett, we should see about gettng Carter and Arashul down here soonest.
[08:58:18] CWO3 Sarah nods at that.
[08:58:55] 2LT Kain Crokett radios in a request to get our specialists down here ASAP with any and all gear they need to record their information. They are not getting a second look at this place.
[09:00:32] GM: Carter and Arashul are flown in and go to work, Balaa has to be bonked (verbally) by Carter once or twice as the pretty lights and grandiose majesty of teh facility cause her to lose herself exploring the environs.
[09:01:38] Radi: A pureblood Perytonian, dont see those everyday.
[09:02:24] Balaa: Astronomy [1d100] => [31] = (31) vs 80, Astrophysics [1d100] => [92] = (92) vs 70, Nav Space [1d100] => [77] = (77) vs 60
[09:02:46] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[09:02:49] Balaa: Astrology [1d100] => [28] = (28) vs 52
[09:02:49] 2LT Kain Crokett: "Ay, could you keep an eye on our Perytonian cluts please?"
[09:03:18] Balaa: [1d20] => [15] = (15)
[09:03:20] 2Lt. Aylanea gigglesnorts very softly. "Sure."
[09:03:52] 2Lt. Aylanea heads over to do so.
[09:05:16] GM: The odd couple do their work, get their readings and such before Radi, returns some time later.
[09:05:25] 1stLTFairman feels alittle sad for Balaa
[09:05:31] Radi: I hope you have what you came for, it is time to leave.
[09:05:52] 2LT Kain Crokett: Alright, you hear the major, gather your gear and get out.
[09:06:06] 2Lt. Aylanea nods quickly.
[09:06:27] Balaa: [1d20] => [7] = (7)
[09:06:49] Balaa trips over a spent shell casing and lnds onher butt.
[09:06:55] CWO3 Sarah nods as well, and heads to see to make sure everyone has everything along, including getting her wrecked Cyclone if it wasn't removed prior, sighing at it.
[09:06:59] Balaa: Oww! Sorry!
[09:07:19] 2Lt. Aylanea erks at that and moves over to help Balaa back up. "You okay?"
[09:07:20] GM: (trips = slips)
[09:07:49] 2LT Komillia Maeless helps carry as much gear as possible out of the room.
[09:07:50] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehehehehe ))
[09:07:52] Balaa smiles with perserverance
[09:07:58] Balaa: Yeah, I'm fine.
[09:08:51] 2Lt. Aylanea smiles and nods a little to that, picking back up anything she's needing to help move.
[09:09:37] GM: You notice that you are the last non praxians to leave, the UEEF and KDF forces are already outside, as shuttles flit in and out to taken them off the floating rock.
[09:10:42] GM: Radi and Ishida hang back and converse for a moment before Ishida rejoins the group as your ride arrives.
[09:11:16] GM: The shuttle takes you to the staging area around New Amastris.
[09:12:19] GM: Free RP
[09:13:42] CWO3 Sarah glances over towards Carter and Balaa, curious. "So, find out all you needed?"
[09:13:47] 2LT Komillia Maeless: So how upset do you think the priestesses will be about their place being damaged?
[09:14:38] 2Lt. Aylanea: "Upset at the Haydonites, I'd hope, not at us…"
[09:14:51] Carter: We'll know more when we get this data parced.
[09:15:17] Carter: And I'd expect them to be plenty pissed off, but yeah, at the clankers, not us all.
[09:15:19] 2LT Kain Crokett looks over to Suki, "I'm guessing that was an old flame?"
[09:15:39] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) blinks.
[09:16:05] 1stLTFairman raises his head as the subject peaks his interest
[09:16:09] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): A, a lady does not talk about such things.
[09:16:25] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) crosses her arms in front of her chest .
[09:16:44] 2LT Kain Crokett: "You were all flustered like a schoolgirl. I'm sorry to bring it up if you don't want to talk abou it."
[09:16:48] 1stLTFairman smiles slyly
[09:16:49] CWO3 Sarah nods a little bit at that, then glances over to Kain and Suki, laughing just a tiny bit.
[09:17:08] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Humph!
[09:18:32] CWO3 Sarah smiles towards Suki brightly, before letting it drop and glancing around again, looking to Komi and Anji. "You both okay?"
[09:20:37] 2LT Komillia Maeless: I'm fine.
[09:20:58] Sgt. Summerwind: Oh, I'm fine, I just never knew the Captain was such a play-ah!
[09:21:16] 1stLTFairman laughs lightly as that
[09:21:54] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) blushes but can't suppress a slight snerk.
[09:22:32] CWO3 Sarah laughs a little at Anji, shaking her head and snickering as she looks over to Suki a moment. Then she looks back. "was worried about any aftereffects from before mostly. We're likely to wind up seeing that Garudan again, unfortunately." She sighs.
[09:23:30] Sgt. Summerwind: Yeah, ahd almost forgotten about that, great, now I'm gonna have to go thru a psyche-eval when we get back…thanks Chief…
[09:25:05] 2LT Komillia Maeless: I barely remember what that thing had me doing.
[09:25:17] CWO3 Sarah sighs and shrugs. "Sorry, Anji." she nods a little at Komi. "Ah."
[09:25:30] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): She had you shooting at us.
[09:26:04] 2Lt. Aylanea peeks over at Komi and raises her eyebrows. "hmm…" She laughs. "I'll show you right what she had you doing, the marks are on my Cyclone." She grins.
[09:27:16] 2LT Komillia Maeless: Sorry, about that.
[09:27:43] GM: After land you are allowed some shore leave before heading back to the ship, Balaa and Carter however return to start checking over the data.
[09:27:57] GM: (land = landing)
[09:28:30] 2Lt. Aylanea grins at Komi. "Well, I'd paddle your behind for it, but I'll refrain this time." she winks then, laughing.
[09:29:01] Sgt. Summerwind: Aww yeah, Zent on Zent crime!
[09:31:14] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) looks at her watch then at the group.
[09:31:47] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Captian's letting us have a two day pass, be back here for dustoff in 47.
[09:32:19] 2Lt. Aylanea nods at that. "Yes, ma'am."
[09:32:29] 1stLTFairman nods
[09:33:16] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) sets her Cyclone to boke mode and motions for Sarah.
[09:33:43] CWO3 Sarah smiles and heads over to get on behind Suki.
[09:33:55] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) zips off into town.
[09:34:01] 2LT Komillia Maeless spends her two days gathering materials to make her costumes from local Exchanges if at all possible.
[09:35:04] GM: You do find some good meterial, and some of the native outfits themselves are rather nice, revealing in the extreme.
[09:35:21] 1stLTFairman decides to see if he can't find some good food that isn't common variety from the mess
[09:36:03] GM: There are some decent local eateries, decent food, long wait.
[09:36:56] 1stLTFairman doesnt mind the wait
[09:38:16] 2Lt. Aylanea wanders around town curiously, looking about at everything. She ooohs at some native outfits, raising her eyebrows and getting something skimpy, just on a lark, with a giggle.
[09:38:49] GM: Sky's the limit on that, some outfits are naught but sandles, a belt and bracers,
[09:39:00] 2Lt. Aylanea: lol. :p :)
[09:39:15] GM: Some are toga like, that cover just one side of the chest
[09:39:33] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lols ))
[09:40:01] GM: It doesnt take long to figure out why the garb is the way it is, the climate if warm, not oppressivly so, but, there really is no need for heavy, or layered clothing
[09:40:17] 2LT Kain Crokett will go looking at local fauna, particularly birds, but other beauties aren't beyond his eyes.
[09:40:29] GM: Birds my ass…
[09:41:06] GM: Yeah, you see birds all right, Booby's and Tit's
[09:41:15] 1stLTFairman after eating wonders around town; looking for a collector or book shop
[09:41:53] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol :) ))
[09:41:53] GM: Those type of establishments aren't found in town, but with the Gymnasiums (Universities)
[09:42:03] GM: with = within
[09:42:38] GM: collectibles on the otherhand, there are plenty of little shops that seel do dads
[09:42:40] GM: sell
[09:43:48] 1stLTFairman visits the collectible shops
[09:47:14] GM: Okay, anything last minute then I shall move on
[09:47:41] Carrie (enter): 21:47
[09:47:59] GM: She's spawning
[09:48:14] Carrie: Booting '(9) Carrie' from room…
[09:48:15] 1stLTFairman buys a small trinket from a shop and plans back
[09:48:15] Carrie (exit): 21:48
[09:48:20] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((not from me))
[09:48:25] 1stLTFairman: (nothing here, so onwards)
[09:48:30] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( grr ))
[09:48:31] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol ))
[09:49:18] GM: Okay, you head back up the ship.
[09:50:05] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehe. k ))
[09:50:45] GM: After you settle in, check your kit, get your medical evals and such (anji!) Carter and Balaa tell you that they have found something.
[09:51:36] 1stLTFairman heads to listen to the Carter
[09:52:03] CWO3 Sarah: (( poor Anji *hugs her* ))
[09:52:51] CWO3 Sarah: (( Anji and Komi both get one if mandatory after mind control. :) ))
[09:52:53] Carter: So, rather then bore you philistines with the wonders of history and culture, I'll get right to the point.
[09:52:58] Carter snickers.
[09:53:20] CWO3 Sarah rolls her eyes.
[09:53:31] 2LT Kain Crokett: Well, we got a couple potential giants in the room…
[09:53:40] Carter: We're pretty sure this is the lighthouse the spine pictograph alluded to.
[09:54:07] Carter: AH! Hah hah! Good one Golioth!
[09:54:19] Carter: Ten points Gryfindor.
[09:54:25] Carter: Okay, now hush.
[09:55:20] Carter: Okay, so yeah, lighthouse is pretty much confirmed, and while the clankers did a decent job of wiping out their files before they left, they likely thought the explosion would do the rest, jokes on them
[09:55:52] Balaa: Right, so, well, basically, they left the arpature open and pointed to what they were looking at.
[09:56:18] Balaa: Pretty…clumsy, of them, wouldn't you say.
[09:56:26] Balaa looks at Kain.
[09:56:54] Sgt. Summerwind: Ooooo she got you EllTee!
[09:57:00] Sgt. Summerwind: Snap!
[09:57:09] 2Lt. Aylanea snickers a little at that.
[09:57:16] 1stLTFairman smiles
[09:58:12] 2LT Kain Crokett: Indeed, though I'll consider that a burn when you don't trip, slip or otherwise fall over things no one else does for at least a week."
[09:58:26] Balaa: No garuntees.
[09:59:04] 2LT Kain Crokett: Either that or I start falling over everything.
[09:59:09] Carter facepalms.
[09:59:14] 2Lt. Aylanea laughs and shakes her head.
[09:59:41] Carter: Riiiight.
[09:59:54] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) clears her throat.
[10:00:09] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): So, where was the arpature pointed Miss Arashul?
[10:00:23] Balaa: Eep! Oh, that.
[10:00:38] Balaa pushes a few buttons on the computer.
[10:00:57] Balaa: Here, far side of the Orion Arm.
[10:01:09] CWO3 Sarah looks on interestedly.
[10:02:10] Balaa: Coreward of us.
[10:06:28] 1stLTFairman watches and listens
[10:07:03] CWO3 Sarah nods a little, looking at the map.
[10:07:25] 2LT Kain Crokett: Do we know anything about that section of the galaxy or is it unexplored?
[10:09:26] Balaa: Well, the more we think about it, it was explored, more or less, but, a long time ago. We really dont know anything about that region of space. Not Even members of my order have ventured out that far.
[10:10:11] Balaa: The Invid may have, and certianly the pregenitor races.
[10:10:58] Carter: Even at the height of it's power, the furthest borders of teh Master Empire still fell 5,000 or so light years short.
[10:11:16] CWO3 Sarah thinks on that, wandering into seeming vapor lock for a moment. [1d100] => [44] = (44) (lore Invid, 81%)
[10:11:50] Carter: Remember, we are ina relitvly small local bubble here, and so is Sol, now, a bit of basic geography here, the Orion Spur is 3500 light yeras thick, and some 10,000 long.
[10:12:47] Carter: Sol is coreward of Fantoma, but the location these guys were looking at is a corward and upstream.
[10:13:32] Carter: So, 5000ly from Praxis, maybe onthe order of 7000 to 8000 from earth.
[10:14:11] 2LT Kain Crokett: How long would it take for us to get there?
[10:14:57] Balaa: It's also on the border of the Spur, figure 10 to 100 light years from where we think they were looking and you run into the open space between the Orion Spur and Sagatarius Arm.
[10:16:08] Carter: Not sure what this bucket tops out at, but, it might take a few weeks, maybe a month.
[10:17:36] GM: Sorry Carrie, thats a region of space that the Regess has never visited
[10:17:45] GM: afk, quick bio, Free Rp
[10:17:53] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe. k ))
[10:18:23] 2LT Kain Crokett: Well, I'll go clear this with the Captain. Make sure we got as many supplies as we can hold. Hopefully we won't run into too many fight out there.
[10:18:56] CWO3 Sarah comes back from her little vapor lock, frowning.
[10:19:30] 1stLTFairman: "That will take some time; do you think we should try another avenue?"
[10:20:37] 2LT Kain Crokett: Do you have a suggestion?
[10:21:49] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Certianly would take us away from teh fighting.
[10:23:10] 1stLTFairman: "None off hand" (just ccurious; what our the coreworlds?)
[10:23:17] 1stLTFairman: (our=are)
[10:23:32] CWO3 Sarah: (( core/wards/, not coreworlds ))
[10:23:36] GM: Corewards
[10:23:40] CWO3 Sarah: (( like, 'towards the galactic core' ))
[10:24:13] GM: in galactic navigation you have coreward = towards the galactic center, and Spinwards = away fromt he galactic center
[10:24:57] GM: Upstream and Downstream are used to determine where along your rotation you are.
[10:26:10] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[10:26:18] CWO3 Sarah: (( class dismissed, moving on? ;) ))
[10:26:34] GM: kk, yeah, I'll hush now
[10:27:01] 1stLTFairman: (ok)
[10:27:15] 1stLTFairman looks to carter to see if he has another alternatives
[10:27:32] Carter shrugs.
[10:27:53] Carter: We have ships that can fold space, nothing I've seen besides possibly the ALL Mother, can move faster.
[10:28:27] CWO3 Sarah looks over to Suki. "With all respects, captain, I'd think that whether it takes us from the fighting is dependent on what's there, and if we beat them to the exact location."
[10:29:00] Carter: We'd have to make hops, but, we'd be in foldspace a lot less time then passes in realspace.
[10:30:19] 1stLTFairman: "yes but wondering if there was a way to slingshot or something to get there faster or some other item we could get instead"
[10:30:55] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): I am not being dismissive chief. We have a fight going on here, now, clear and present. There, well, we do not know. That being said, Valtegos has put a lot of time and effort into his quest, and if for any other reason, to spite him by denying him his prize…
[10:31:14] CWO3 Sarah nods at that.
[10:33:01] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Besides, we are sure to find a foight out there as well.
[10:33:06] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): (fight)
[10:33:07] 2LT Kain Crokett heads to make his report to the Captain.
[10:33:51] CWO3 Sarah nods a little bit at that, and sighs, relaxing.
[10:33:57] 2LT Komillia Maeless: Still better to know what's going on than to not. Think what would happen if there is some sort of superweapon, or something that could be turned into one, at the end of this quest?
[10:34:41] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) nods
[10:35:02] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Better to be out of ciruclation chasing a myth then to remain behind and find the myth is real.
[10:35:58] CWO3 Sarah nods at that. "definitely."
[10:36:13] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): My recommendation will be to proceed. I would of couse update your LAst Will and testament before we fold out. Set your affaris in local space in order.
[10:37:54] 2LT Komillia Maeless nods.
[10:38:13] 2LT Komillia Maeless prepares her will and sends a letter to her brother.
[10:38:28] GM: Kain make yer spiel to ze Captian…and we will move along
[10:38:43] CWO3 Sarah gives Suki a /look/ at that, sighing at the thought, but nodding after.
[10:40:45] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((I was just going to do it "off camera" unless you think there is a need for soemthing to happen.))
[10:41:15] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[10:42:32] GM: kk, just give me the jist, yea or nay
[10:42:47] GM: go ro no go
[10:42:52] GM: ro = or
[10:43:45] 1stLTFairman: go
[10:44:09] 2LT Kain Crokett reports the findings of the scientists and the consensus of the group. He gives his recommendation to go based purely on the Haydonites' ferver in trying to get to whatever is at the end of the rainbow and lets the captain say his peace (not that Kain could stop him).
[10:44:14] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((so go.))
[10:44:35] GM: Okay, you set youraffairs into order and begin your long march
[10:45:39] GM: Insert dramatic music, long pans, beauty shots of intersteller terrain, cool close ups of your space craft as you conduct CAP operations during your pit stops out of fold while you wait for the engines to cool and recharge etc.
[10:46:17] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[10:46:44] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((AFK Bio))
[10:46:49] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( CAP planes buzzing the tower… ;) ))
[10:48:23] GM: After a while you get to really appreciate the distance as your routine communicatiosn get further and furhter in between, some news you get is positive, the UEEF has begun their island hopping campaign towards Haydon IV, some not so, Tirol is still in enemy hands, but relief efforts are underway to bolster the resistance there.
[10:50:01] GM: And then there is the feeling that a larger ship would have been better for this, amidst the grousing of some crew about the situation, not all of them like being this far from home.
[10:50:34] GM: It is one thing to be far from home and still be in the company of other humans, I.e the uEEF , but out here, there is nothing.
[10:51:03] GM: along that vain, the crew is kept very busy with preventative maintenance, etc
[10:51:56] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((back))
[10:52:38] GM: after a few weeks, (some of your time is spent in real space) you are ready to make your final jump into the region of space you are interested in
[10:53:17] GM: The ship goes to red alert, and goes thru the motion as if you were jumping into combat.
[10:55:25] 2LT Kain Crokett gets in his gamma and goes through his preflight checks.
